ENG vs GER: England has been amongst the top participating nations with the big names backing them up. They will host the ‘destructive’ Germany side in the Round of 16 knockout games at Wembley Stadium.
England has been in sublime form having been crowned the table toppers of Group D. They started their campaign with a 1-0 win against Croatia and followed it with a disappointing stalemate against Scotland.
They made up for it against the Czech Republic in their last group stage match by winning 1-0; courtesy of an early strike by Sterling. In both their victories, Raheem Sterling has been the only goal scorer for the English team. However, the team in its entirety has been contributing exceptionally towards their roles.
On the other hand, Germany had an unfortunate start conceding an own goal giving away a win to France. They didn’t turn down and followed it with an emphatic 4-2 win against Defending champions Portugal.
In their last game, courtesy of Kai Havertz’s goal they managed to find an equaliser to Ádám Szalai’s 11th-minute beauty. Hungary, who was more than confident of a win after András Schäfer made it 2-1 were outfoxed as a late strike from Leon Goretzka helped Germany sneak a 2-2 draw.
The upcoming encounter will surely be a battle between two football giants as only one will find a way to the quarter-finals.
